Founded in 2017 and (eventually) publicly launched in 2018, A Northern Explorer is my travel blog where I share my backpacking adventures – mostly in the form of various hapless travel stories with some hopefully useful tips and advice thrown in.
I use my blog to focus mainly on storytelling and so often write using a travel diary style format, injected with a sense of humour that will either make you laugh or awkwardly close this tab and never come back ever again. (Fingers crossed it’s the first one).
Here are some of my favourite posts that represent my blog’s tone of voice and writing style (and love of beer, apparently, which I’ve just realised is a key part in each one):
- How I (sort of) cope with a (sort of) fear of flying
- A guide on how to spend 72 hours in Berlin
- How to spend a week in Munich during Oktoberfest (including things that aren’t beer)
My online following has been organically growing since May 2018, and currently looks like this:
- 400 + monthly blog views
- 2,200 + social media followers
Examples of previous work
I’ve recently started to reach out and pitch to work on some guest posts. I wrote these two for Euroventure, a travel company based in Leeds:
I would love to collaborate further with brands in 2019 and make some more exciting travel related content for our audiences to enjoy and be inspired by.
If you have an opportunity that you think I would be a good fit for, or if you would like to see my media kit, fire me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
